Can I apply for a rental property if I am self employed?

Learn more about how we verify income on our rental applications for self employed individuals.

If you're self-employed, we will accept an application, so long as:

  • The applicant can provide documentation (such as tax returns) that proves the self-employment income is sufficient to make the monthly rental payment.
  • The applicant's income is deemed as coming from a recurring & reliable source.

Applicants that rely solely on alimony, child support, unemployment, and trust funds will not qualify. 

How to add other forms of income to our rental application:

  • Visit our website to apply for any properties listed
  • Select the Apply Now button 
  • When you arrive at the "Your Income Page," fill out the type of payments you receive or where you receive them from:

For example, "Self Employed."
